Coping Without Numbing

Being a former drug abuser, addict at one point, it’s really hard to process traumatic events without reverting back to numbing yourself. Pushing though the feeling is hard, but worth it. Instead I turned my instagram private to detox and am playing Jaded by Aerosmith while crying into a napkin before going out for the day. Rock is my healing music, always has been always will be. Dealing with your emotions without bad habits is no small feat. It’s important to share moments like this to connect and uplift anyone who is going through it, to track how far you’ve come, definitely not as a means for attention, which a lot of people think is cute. Today all my focus will be on me, I don’t give a damn about anything else. How do you cope? Is it healthy? Are you happy? Artist: Chloe Smart Print
